We now know Emma Watson’s ringtone – because her phone went off during an interview

Smartphones are great for so many things, but they can also be the bane of our existence at times – especially when we forget to mute them. We’re referring to all those awkward moments that occur right after our ringtone goes off in the wrong place at the wrong time. This is especially painful if you’ve programmed a guilty pleasure song to sound off whenever someone contacts you.

Interestingly enough, Emma Watson knows exactly what we’re talking about.


During a recent interview with Lorraine, while discussing her new movie The Colony, Emma’s phone betrayed her. Right when she was talking about the eerie feeling she experienced in Chile (while she was there researching for her role), Tina Turner’s sultry “Steamy Windows” began to play. While it’s not a song we’d call a “guilty pleasure,” it’s definitely something we wouldn’t expect to hear coming out of Watson’s phone.


That is so embarrassing,” Emma exclaimed, somehow looking both mortified and adorable at the same time. She then looked at the camera and added, “That’s my phone. That’s Tina Turner.

Luckily, the interviewer seemed to be a big fan of Turner’s, so he was totally cool with the interruption and even complimented Emma on her ringtone choice. “Well, I’m glad I’m forgiven because it’s Tina Turner,” Emma responded. “Otherwise, that would have been terrible. I’m so sorry.


Just when we thought we couldn’t love Emma Watson more than we already do, she goes and gets a Tina Turner ringtone.
